The former Violator co-founder Chris Lighty was found dead this morning inside of his apartment.
The NY Daily News says:
“It appeared he died from a bullet to his head. A gun was recovered next to his body. Law enforcement sources said Lighty — who divorced his wife Veronica last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.”
Chris has worked with some of the greatest like Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott, Fantasia, Mya, Diggy Simmons, Ja Rule, Mobb Deep, LL Cool J, Nas and 50 Cent.
Celebrity twitter has been going crazy with condolences and shocked reactions. Sounds like he was a great man!
